|After traipsing through a barren desert for several hours, you come upon an Engwithan ruin in the center of a clearing.
As you near, you realize the door to the ruin's entrance is emblazoned with the broken crown of Woedica.
The door swings open at your approach, and you immediately feel an oppressive presence butting against your mind. It tests your mental defenses, searching for a gap to exploit.
Then, just as quickly as the presence arrives, it's gone.
Points of interest
- This is a small temple, with most of it blocked off. The chamber leading to Gulfaryc has a single trap in the floor, with another inside, where the ex-Garrote members are. The treasure they protect, Magistrate's Cudgel, is on the knees of the statue.
- With Modwyr equipped, examining the cudgel will prompt some dialogue from her. She says that whatever the weapon is, it's "...really, really stupid. And disgusting."
- Magistrate's Cudgel: On the statue. Need Intellect 14 and Resolve 15 to collect (otherwise, Resolve 17 to force it to leave).
